I was in the mood to try something new the other day, and remembered a tutorial I had seen for replicating OPI’s elusive Black Spotted. I probably should have watched the tutorial again instead of just diving in, because this didn’t quite turn out how I had hoped. But it was an interesting experience. I can’t say that I’ll try this again soon, but that’s only because I hate water marbling and this is a very similar, and equally messy, technique.
I started with a base of Orly Mirror Mirror, and then used China Glaze Grape Pop for the water spots (no idea what to call it). It’s more speckled than spotted, but I have to say I LOVE how my index finger turned out. It’s like a weird gradient and I wish I could do that all the time, but I have no idea how I achieved that result. So it’ll probably never happen again.
If you’d like to know how to accomplish (something hopefully a little prettier than) this look, just search water spotted nails on YouTube and about a million tutorials will come up. What do you think? Have you tried replicating Black Spotted?
